RPC (remote proceedure call) is a denpendancy. without it running a bunch of theings will not work. have you looked in services (services.msc) to see if you can start the service. Notice in the snip that RPC is started

You may well need to uninstall any Audio software/devices and then re-install them. I've had similar issues with other services and after a complete re-install of the devices (including Windows Update drivers) i got it working.

Hope this helps

i always seem to be on the tail of that kitty LOL

Yes. there are so many things that depend on rpc that stopping it would kill a bunch of things.
Im still looking for a solution
